Are you CPD compliant?

Today is the deadline for submitting your CPD statement to the General Dental Council (GDC).  If you do, not you are at risk of falling off the register and no longer able to practise.

If the initial submission deadline is missed, registrants then have a short window in which to provide the regulator with evidence of CPD undertaken over their five-year cycle and, should that not be forthcoming, non-compliant registrants will face removal.

GDC Executive Director, Registration and Corporate Resources, Gurvinder Soomal, said:

It takes just a few minutes to complete the statement via the online portal at and I’d suggest that anyone who employs DCPs as part of their dental team might want to check that everyone’s made their submission.”

Further information is available at and the GDC can be contacted at or on 020 7167 6000 to answer questions.

In addition, from 1 August 2018 all DCPs moved onto the new system of Enhanced CPD from which, amongst other things, sees changes to the way CPD should be planned and recorded over the cycle, as well as to the amount of CPD to be undertaken.
